Volatile and underprepared
Tire Technician (Former Employee) – Stafford, TX – January 17, 2017
When I began the job, I was the only tire tech so they had me working 60hr weeks or more, opening to close 6 days a week then they hired a few more tire techs.
I learned how to change tires, change engine oil, fix brakes, wheel alignment, alternation replacement, and some engine work.
The management wasn't so good, they hired people out of need to fill a position, and these people in turn cost the company some money because of their mistakes and were let go.
There was no incentives for advancement.
Co-workers were either lazy, or backstabbing, willing to throw you under the bus whenever.
The hardest part of the job was trying to be a team player yet being cautious so as not to taint your record because of someone else's mistake or nonchalant attitude.
The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the mechanics and learning new skills on slow days.
Learnt skills that were outside my job description
Short breaks, lazy co-workers
